Wishing you a Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah from the Holy Land

Today I start a three week volunteer program in Israel for the Israel Defense Force.  http://www.vfi-usa.org/

“You work on an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) base performing non-combat civilian support duties such as packing medical supplies; repairing machinery and equipment; building fortifications; and cleaning, painting, and maintaining the base. Working alongside soldiers, base employees, and other volunteers, you will help Israel shoulder its defense burden”.

As of this morning I only know that I will be at Matzrap medical base on Tel Hashomer army base very close to Ben Gurion airport. I have NO idea what I’ll be doing.

I don’t think I’ll have internet access Sunday Morning through Thursday evening so my goal is to get caught up on posts about Turkey before I leave and time them to post while I’m volunteering.

Early morning hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, Turkey!
